43. Thanks for your science fiction scenario.

 

By science fiction scenario, I don't mean the silly and totally irrelevant "what if gravity stopped working" story you tell about 2068. (Well, what if it did? Eh? Where would your fancy ideas be then, eh?) Because if we just sat here and made up incredibly unlikely numbers, we could as easily come up with a scenario wherein 70 percent vote for one candidate while another wins the electoral vote.

But this is a real gem of short fiction: "We already are a great democracy. And the rest of the world already knows it."

Which is to say, you misplaced your all-powerful ROFL smiley - the favorite icon of the braindead, though certainly we're not including you in that category. It should be one paragraph lower.
